Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: influence of classical music on the GD

As usual LIA you bring some interesting points to the table,and throw a thought monkey wrench into the mix causing more ideas and possibilities to bounce around my brain.Bkidwell's 8 point post was still working on me when I came across yours.I had listened to an especially feisty live version of the Love Supreme suite by Coltrane and detected what I believe to the technique of playing a series of notes derived from the main theme up and down the scale,that he had noted in point #3.Happy I might have made a little use of some new information I see your post and it opens a door to a whole new way to think about how they used the music that influenced them,so much for a step forward in knowledge,it can be humbling how complex this hobby can be.
In any event I did a little classical listening and searched out a short piece that I have always enjoyed,for one reason or another Paganini's violin works have always interested me,and this one puts me in mind of Jerry during a very out jam in Dark Star or Playin' or such.Caprice No.1
